When I clean an album, I mean the following:
1) Vacuum clean the vinyl with two different solutions and a vacuum rinse with distilled water
2) Give it a new anti-static inner sleeve
3) Use compressed air on the inside of the album cover to clear out the dust/grit
4) Use cheap vodka (Smirnoff or similar) to wipe the surfaces of the cover and inside gatefold (if any). Vodka dries quickly and down not harm the surface. Rubbing alcohol is too aggresive
5) Put newly cleaned album in 4 mil poly sleeve and file with the original inner sleeve if the inner sleeve is has album or label infomation…
These albums were bought at tag sales (‘garage sales’ for you non-New Englanders) or thrift shops…
Here’s some images of some of the albums done this weekend:
This was funn because I cleaned this one which is traditional music from the Middle East while I was cleaning my AR-15… I thought it was a funny coincidence…
This one was not authentic Spanish style guitar… It was kinda weird pop with full instrumentation and some Spanish guitar stylings thrown in.
1967. This was a great album of upbeat music that somebody thought would be good to listen to while you hug panty girls apparently. I’m all for it myself… All the music was interesting and similar to 1960’s beach movie interpretations of rock beat…
Here’s a little de’tail’ shot from Valley of the Dolls…
Talk about poupees… See previous image…
This is a nice version of Peter and the Wolf. I have always liked Peter Ustinov.
Here is Peter in Hartford…
This was a very fun and bouncy spaceage pop albums. Great heavy handed stereo production as are most of the spaceage pop recordings. When the first stereo recording began coming out, they were not sure how to use it and since it was a new toy they insisted on mixing extreme stereo with lots of panning sounds…

We STILL are waiting for the verdict from the trial in Dallas. According to the bailiff, the jury will be done by noon today. All of this time does not bode well for the good guys. However, the jury has asked two questions they sent to the judge. The first was about what happens if they can’t get the same 10 people to agree on all counts and does that make them a “hung jury” (I suspect this is what they would like to happen). The judge asked them to go back and work harder as they need the same ten jurors to agree on all issues. The second question was much more encouraging. The jury sent another note to the judge early yesterday asking if they could award zero damages when the jury instruction says if they found the answer to question 10 (the most critical question or issue they will decide: liability) to be “yes” then they should award “nominal damages”. The question was: can zero be nominal damages? The judge told them no.
We continue to wait…continued in comment thread…
VERDICT IN: SEE COMMENTS
BANGKOK (Reuters) – A maverick Thai general who has threatened to bomb anti-government protesters and drop snakes on them from helicopters has been reassigned as an aerobics teacher, the Bangkok Post said on Friday.
Hey, these protestors have shut down the airport, are armed and have injured many… I think this guy should have received permission, a medal and a butt-load of snakes.
I will admit to having passed a few good farts but never one that could turn off my friends computers!

Here is a picture of Mr. Brownlow from the WIR post last week. I apologize for the crappiness of the image as it was taken with my phone.
In this picture he is seen demonstrating how he thought Oswald was turned by the cop to which he was handcuffed to be shot by Jack Ruby.
